Patterns are one of the most valuable software engineering innovations of the past generation -- arguably the most valuable. But, as groundbreaking as the Gang of Four's Design Patterns was, translating their patterns for use in production Java applications isn't always easy. The solution? Metsker and Wake's Design Patterns in Java, Second Edition.
This book brings those classic patterns to life, with realistic examples and challenges that use Java 1.5 and its key libraries. All 23 GoF patterns are here: “interface” patterns like Adapter and Facade; “responsibility” patterns like Singleton; “construction patterns” like Abstract Factory; “operation” patterns like Template Method; and much more.
Don't just read Metzker and Wake: Work their challenges. There's no better way to internalize these patterns, so you'll actually use them -- and get the benefits they've always promised. Bill Camarda, from the May 2006 Read Only
